It's Getting Better All The Time

Not sure why but The Beatles's song Getting Better is playing in my head right now.

I suppose things are getting better for me. For one thing, there is now no chance that Sarah Palin will become the President, at least not in the next four years. For anyone who is still on the fence as to whether or not she's an idiot, her not knowing if Africa is a country or a continent should seal the deal for you.

I really hope the republican policy of trying to see exactly how stupid of a person they can get in the White House will die off in the next four years, but I'm not holding my breath.

Moving beyond politics, things are going much better for me. I started working out again about a month back, something that was sorely needed. It's a good thing I did too because I've now started playing indoor soccer again after about an eight year hiatus. As much as it hurts because of how out of shape I am, I can only imagine how bad it would have been if I wasn't working out at all prior to this.

I've also effectively stopped playing WarHammer during the week, instead opting to take Bear up to the local dog park when I get home from work. Besides getting me out side for a little bit extra every day it gives my dog a chance to run around like an idiot and sniff some doggy butts for a bit. I'm pretty sure both of us are happier for the change.

Finally, although I didn't get a chance to go back home and hang out with my cousin who's home from the Marines, I will be able to make it back there for Thanksgiving. It will be great to see my family again and I'm really looking forward to the long weekend back in Michigan.

Whenever my mom goes out of town I end up taking her dog to the dog park. He gets all lonely and misses her, so a little interaction does him some good.

I think I dig the dog park more than I probably should. There's something oddly nice about it. People are friendly and easy going.

Yeah, they are. It's one of those unique places where people still stand around and bs with complete strangers.

I found a neat trick when I took my dog there yesterday. At the park I go to they have a small fenced area that leads to the larger fenced area so if a dog gets through one fence, it won't get all the way out. Anyways, if one dog is left in the small area and the other dogs are in the big area, all the dogs will run up and down the fence line, barking and freaking out because they can't get to the dog on the other side. It was a great way to get my dog to completely exhaust himself.
